The University of Toronto is revising its 1997 Secondary Plan, creating a new Secondary Plan that will better reflect the evolving demands and expectations of the University, the City, and the provincial planning framework. The new Secondary Plan will incorporate the objectives of such existing documents as the 2011 St. George Campus Master Plan, the Huron Sussex Neighbourhood Planning, and TOcore.
ERA is collaborating with the University and Urban Strategies to develop the new Secondary Plan. ERA will lead the establishment of the project’s heritage framework and has established the creation of ‘Character Areas’ as the core organizing framework of the plan. ERA has previously worked with the University of Toronto on several projects, both in the conservation and restoration of the numerous heritage buildings on campus and in their planning processes. ERA is proud to continue this legacy of collaboration, contributing to a plan that greatly impacts the future of the downtown core.
